In this table, the "mean" means the empirically measured average funniness score when the "unfunny", "somewhat funny" and "funny" receive a funniness score of 1, 2, 3 respectively. "Precison" is the standard error of the mean, the standard deviation of the mean estimate. With that, a caption with an empirical mean μ and precision σ has true mean in the range [μ - 2σ, μ + 2σ] with 95% probability by the 68-95-99.7 rule assuming the responses are indepedent and identically distributed.

842 Would you say that you’re a team player? 1.2632 0.03908 190 149 32 9
843 When I asked for your pitch, Jenkins, I had something else in mind. 1.2632 0.03522 228 178 40 10
844 Your sales pitch is stretching into my lunch hour, so wind it up. 1.2629 0.03967 175 136 32 7
845 Very clever. You're making a pitch. Now get on with it. 1.2627 0.03267 217 164 49 4
846 Sir, this is Citi Bank. You're looking for the field 1.2626 0.04217 179 143 25 11
847 I know you are going to throw me a curve. So why don't we just go to your fast pitch and get this interview into the home stretch? 1.2626 0.03987 179 140 31 8
848 No interpreter today? 1.2626 0.03908 179 139 33 7
849 I already told you, dad, my passion is accounting! 1.2626 0.03744 179 137 37 5
850 So, where's the rest of the team? 1.2624 0.03616 202 156 39 7
851 I would prefer that your pitches be low and definitely outside. 1.2624 0.03684 202 157 37 8
852 Please be straight with me, because the other four candidates kept throwing me curveballs. 1.2623 0.03773 183 141 36 6
853 When you said you had a pitch for me, I didn't think you meant literally. 1.2620 0.03946 187 147 31 9
854 It’s bottom of the ninth, bases are loaded, and we’re all relying on you Johnson. Now get out of my office. 1.2620 0.03873 187 146 33 8
855 Wait, this company can't afford another strike! " 1.2619 0.03654 210 164 37 9
856 When I flash 3 fingers speak, 2 fingers listen and one finger...never mind. 1.2619 0.04325 168 134 24 10
857 So pitch me a reason why you deserve this job! 1.2619 0.03258 210 158 49 3
858 I think you’re taking this sales pitch a little too figuratively. 1.2618 0.03818 191 149 34 8
859 You have five seconds to make your pitch. 1.2614 0.04263 176 141 24 11
860 For God’s sake, Steve, why do you always have to take things so literally?! 1.2613 0.03716 199 155 36 8
861 It’s the same bad idea no matter how you pitch it! 1.2613 0.03463 222 172 42 8
862 Sorry you went through so much effort but your boss must have misunderstood -- we wanted a new picture. 1.2611 0.03968 180 141 31 8
863 No, it's not a work from home position. 1.2611 0.04121 180 143 27 10
864 PowerPoint would have been fine, too. 1.2611 0.03642 180 137 39 4
865 Now let’s see your elevator pitch. 1.2611 0.03798 203 160 33 10
866 Thank you, Roberts. Your sports analogy didn't work today, but I will be having a hot dog and a beer for lunch. 1.2609 0.03833 184 143 34 7
867 When I said to come in and give me your pitch, I meant for your business idea! 1.2609 0.03748 207 163 34 10
868 Under the new rules, you only have 15 seconds to make this pitch. 1.2606 0.03999 188 149 29 10
869 You don't look like a closer to me. 1.2604 0.03423 192 145 44 3
870 No, no. I’m here to analyze your sales pitch. 1.2601 0.04232 173 138 25 10
871 That the last time I let the intern set up our “pitch meetings.” 1.2601 0.03902 173 134 33 6
872 That still doesn’t explain why you stole 1.2601 0.04070 173 136 29 8
873 Sorry, kid. The two-minute pitch has to be done in the elevator. 1.2600 0.03962 200 160 28 12
874 You misunderstood me when I said I was going to play hardball with you. 1.2599 0.04008 177 139 30 8
875 Mr. Met will see you now. 1.2598 0.03845 204 162 31 11
876 Cute, Jenkins. But no matter how much you dress up this pitch, it’s still a “no.” 1.2597 0.04302 154 121 26 7
877 Look, if I hear so much as a whisper that you’re planning a strike… 1.2597 0.04100 154 119 30 5
878 I didn't mean it literally. 1.2597 0.04026 181 143 29 9
879 That's not what I meant when I said you needed to pitch me some new ideas. 1.2593 0.04119 189 152 25 12
880 We are sending you down to Toledo. 1.2593 0.04066 162 126 30 6
881 This may be your first strike, but we're still going to fire you. 1.2593 0.03980 189 150 29 10
882 Let me hear your best pitch. 1.2593 0.03610 189 145 39 5
883 Okay Murdock, when I said to give me your best pitch, I meant sales pitch. 1.2591 0.03924 193 153 30 10
884 What is an Elevator Pitch? 1.2590 0.03909 166 128 33 5
885 Sorry, but the pitch clock has expired. 1.2588 0.03941 170 132 32 6
886 This does not qualify as a "quality start" Hargrove. 1.2586 0.04049 174 137 29 8
887 I hope you’re not waiting for a sign before you give your pitch. 1.2584 0.03908 178 139 32 7
888 Thanks for coming in. You've been traded. 1.2584 0.03988 178 140 30 8
889 I get it Jackson, you never wanted to be an accountant but... 1.2583 0.04353 151 119 25 7
890 I can see your underpants! 1.2583 0.04251 151 118 27 6
891 Okay, okay. Pitch your idea, and then take your mound with you. 1.2582 0.03729 213 169 33 11
892 Listen if you keep playing hardball, I’m going to pull you out of the negotiations and bring in the closer. 1.2581 0.03907 217 176 26 15
893 Give me your pitch but don’t get dirt on my floor. 1.2577 0.03695 194 151 36 7
894 Skip the windup, just give me the pitch, 1.2577 0.03852 163 125 34 4
895 Sorry son, but I’m still too busy to play catch with you. 1.2577 0.04402 163 131 22 10
896 "Your pitch is too literal." 1.2575 0.04070 167 131 29 7

900 I'd offer you lunch, but we're out of peanuts and Cracker Jacks. 1.2571 0.04029 175 138 29 8
901 Well, I'll say this for you, you've got balls. 1.2571 0.03947 175 137 31 7
902 This is not what I meant when I said I wanted to see your best pitch. 1.2567 0.03855 187 147 32 8
903 Let me see that pitch again. 1.2565 0.03577 191 147 39 5
904 You gotta a lot of balls coming in here 1.2565 0.03873 191 151 31 9
905 Not bad for your first pitch 1.2565 0.03801 191 150 33 8
906 Let's see what you got. 1.2564 0.04444 156 125 22 9
907 It’s a screwball idea but it just might work! 1.2563 0.04182 160 126 27 7
908 I just calls 'em like I sees 'em. 1.2560 0.03776 168 129 35 4
909 You ever do this on a elevator? 1.2560 0.04136 168 133 27 8
910 You don’t have to bring your mound to every meeting. 1.2560 0.03680 168 128 37 3
911 We have a fifteen second pitch clock. 1.2557 0.03581 176 134 39 3
912 Those pants will never meet the dress code. 1.2556 0.03706 180 139 36 5
913 I get the curveball analogy, Johnson. Now just give your report. 1.2554 0.03573 184 141 39 4
914 This isn’t the pitch I was expecting 1.2554 0.04041 184 147 27 10
915 Where do you see yourself in ten years? 1.2554 0.03892 184 145 31 8
916 I have to admit, it’s an unusual sales pitch. 1.2554 0.03967 184 146 29 9
917 We need you to change-up your sales pitch. 1.2553 0.03836 188 148 32 8
918 I'm sorry I have to let you go, Smith, but you haven't been reading the signals. 1.2553 0.03910 188 149 30 9
919 Make your pitch. You've got less than 20 seconds, according to MLB rules. 1.2553 0.03836 188 148 32 8
920 It was a nice pitch but you didn’t need the costume. 1.2552 0.03711 192 150 35 7
921 Shirley get in here please, I asked for a baseball pic-ture 1.2552 0.03925 192 153 29 10
922 Yes, Mrs. Hinkley, I received the pitcher for my office that I asked for, but there's a small problem with it. 1.2548 0.04510 157 127 20 10
923 So I guess you are here to pitch your idea 1.2547 0.03968 161 125 31 5
924 And you're sure you didn't leave it in your car? 1.2547 0.04342 161 129 23 9

940 Is it possible to work remotely from home plate? 1.2532 0.04484 158 128 20 10
941 The instructions for the interview were meant to be friendly, not literal 1.2530 0.04070 166 131 28 7
942 Your resume indicates you were previously a belly-itcher. 1.2530 0.03979 166 130 30 6
943 I admire your sales pitch! 1.2529 0.03404 174 131 42 1
944 I'm sorry. That position has been filled. 1.2529 0.03861 174 136 32 6
945 It’s noon. How ‘bout a slider? 1.2527 0.03587 182 140 38 4
946 I've fielded many product pitches, but this is really a curve ball 1.2527 0.03987 182 145 28 9
947 I know, today’s opening day. But you’re still working in Accounts Receivable. 1.2527 0.03855 186 147 31 8
948 Balk to me. 1.2526 0.03873 190 151 30 9
949 You do go all out when you’re pitching a proposal, Evans. 1.2526 0.03820 194 154 31 9
950 Clearly, you misunderstood when I asked to see your pitch. 1.2526 0.03820 194 154 31 9
951 We can only use someone your age if he is left handed. 1.2525 0.03848 202 162 29 11

953 Okay, okay, I get it now. Make your pitch. 1.2523 0.03653 218 174 33 11
954 I think you look better in pin stripes! 1.2516 0.04182 159 126 26 7
955 I think claiming 5 million dollars in gambling losses might be a red flag. 1.2515 0.04294 163 131 23 9
956 You've pitched some great ideas to the client but I think we need to bring in the closer. 1.2515 0.03866 167 130 32 5
957 I need to give my former employer one season notice 1.2515 0.04137 167 133 26 8
958 No, you can't work from home. 1.2515 0.04155 171 137 25 9

964 I’d rather hear your pitch. 1.2514 0.03814 183 144 32 7
965 It has been brought to my attention that you are outstanding in your field. 1.2513 0.03983 187 150 27 10
966 Seems a little off base 1.2513 0.03613 199 156 36 7
967 You’ve got eighteen seconds to make the pitch 1.2512 0.03523 207 162 38 7
968 I said I wanted to see your slides, not your slider. 1.2500 0.03743 188 148 33 7
969 Don't balk at my proposal. 1.2500 0.03666 188 147 35 6
970 I'll say this, when you're pitching an idea you don't fuck around. 1.2500 0.03873 184 146 30 8
971 Come on in. Next batter up! 1.2500 0.03865 160 124 32 4
972 People are saying you’ve been high and outside. 1.2500 0.04133 172 138 25 9

975 Second base when your interpreter arrives. 1.2500 0.03865 160 124 32 4
976 You’ve made a very compelling pitch. 1.2500 0.03736 176 137 34 5
977 That was quite a pitch! 1.2500 0.03219 192 145 46 1
978 You are too late. We built it, they came, and have now left. 1.2500 0.03762 160 123 34 3
979 I’m afraid we got our signals crossed 1.2500 0.03818 156 120 33 3
980 We have a minor problem. 1.2500 0.03877 152 117 32 3
981 Thanks for stepping up to the plate here, but I think you're off base. 1.2500 0.04270 164 132 23 9
982 I have heard of elevator pitches, but this... 1.2500 0.03692 192 151 34 7
983 It’s a figure of speech. 1.2500 0.04027 168 133 28 7
984 Bob, I said I wanted you to pitch me some ideas. 1.2500 0.03989 176 140 28 8
985 Just to note: my desklamp has a very, very small strike zone. 1.2500 0.04084 180 145 25 10
986 Yes, but can you bring it home? 1.2500 0.03656 168 129 36 3
987 Good try, Harvey, but it's the same stupid pitch you tried last time, and it's not gonna work. Plus, I can see through your pants. 1.2488 0.03748 209 168 30 11
988 That's a pretty wild pitch. 1.2488 0.03292 201 154 44 3
989 I know you've got a no-hitter going. But keep in mind, we're only in the bottom of the second! 1.2487 0.03820 193 154 30 9
990 Lets hear your pitch. 1.2486 0.03667 181 141 35 5
991 Nice curveball. Now let’s see your elevator pitch. 1.2486 0.03750 181 142 33 6
992 Ok, but can we leave the spitting part out? 1.2486 0.03831 181 143 31 7
993 When I offered you the chance to make a pitch, this wasn't what I had in mind, Rodriguez. 1.2486 0.03667 181 141 35 5
994 Well if this isn’t a curveball 1.2486 0.03910 181 144 29 8
995 You can’t deduct a fast ball. 1.2486 0.03681 173 134 35 4
996 Thish pitch better be good. The boss's loaded. 1.2485 0.04424 169 139 18 12
997 So that was your best pitch? 1.2485 0.03637 169 130 36 3
998 You have fifteen seconds to make your pitch. 1.2485 0.04247 165 133 23 9
999 O.K., Pitch it to me once more, but this time I want you to put a positive spin on it. 1.2485 0.03884 165 129 31 5
1000 I think I can squeeze you in in the bottom of the 7th inning. 1.2484 0.04041 161 127 28 6

1007 OK. You've got 1 minute to give me your best pitch. 1.2474 0.03659 194 153 34 7
1008 You have a great attitude and a fantastic resume. Unfortunately, we decided to go a different way and made an offer to a left-handed candidate. 1.2474 0.03802 194 155 30 9
1009 This isn't what I meant by pitching your idea. 1.2474 0.03855 190 152 29 9
1010 The board asks that you refrain from calling yourself the Relief VP. 1.2473 0.03984 186 150 26 10
1011 That is the most interesting pitch ever made in this conference room. 1.2473 0.03681 186 146 34 6
1012 Okay. You're up. Pitch it to me. 1.2473 0.03565 182 141 37 4
1013 First of all, thank you for agreeing to this unusual interview format. 1.2473 0.03732 182 143 33 6
1014 What kinda game are you playing here, mister? 1.2471 0.04009 174 139 27 8
1015 Asking someone to come in and ‘pitch their idea’ is not meant literally! 1.2471 0.03752 174 136 33 5
1016 I said sales pitch. 1.2471 0.04071 170 136 26 8
1017 So I assume you took "make your best pitch to the company" quite literally? 1.2470 0.03863 166 130 31 5
1018 We don't have room for screwballs in this company, Rodriguez. 1.2470 0.03863 166 130 31 5
1019 You're in corporate America now, take as long as you want. 1.2470 0.03956 166 131 29 6
1020 Are you just going to stand there? 1.2470 0.03863 166 130 31 5
1021 The catcher has agreed to your proposal of a slider, provided that you accept his low-and-outside clause. 1.2470 0.04224 166 134 23 9
1022 You only have 15 seconds, better go with the elevator pitch. 1.2468 0.03882 158 123 31 4
1023 Here to submit my pitch, sir 1.2468 0.03882 158 123 31 4
1024 Do I need to remind you, Ace, that you’re on the clock? Now, once again, ‘Who’s on first?’ 1.2462 0.03665 199 158 33 8
1025 Ok...let's have your pitch. 1.2457 0.03644 175 136 35 4
1026 These co-working spaces are getting out of hand! 1.2457 0.04070 175 141 25 9
1027 For a wild story presentation, this is the worst pitch! 1.2457 0.03553 175 135 37 3
1028 That’s not 60 feet 6 inches. 1.2456 0.03876 171 135 30 6
1029 No man is an island.... 1.2456 0.04050 171 137 26 8
1030 Sales are down. You’re not the closer we thought you were. 1.2455 0.04201 167 135 23 9
1031 I think you misunderstood what I meant by ‘pitch meeting’ 1.2455 0.03935 167 132 29 6
1032 I think I prefer the elevator pitch 1.2454 0.04091 163 130 26 7
1033 Enough, enough! I saw the sign, did you see the sign? 1.2453 0.03962 159 125 29 5
1034 Tell me about a time when you stepped up to the plate. 1.2453 0.04061 159 126 27 6
1035 What else can you do? 1.2446 0.04313 139 110 24 5
1036 Looks like HR threw us both a curveball. 1.2444 0.03909 180 144 28 8
1037 While I can appreciate the pitch, getting the clay out of the carpet is kind of a deal breaker. 1.2444 0.04141 180 147 22 11
1038 I was expecting you to pitch me a business proposal... 1.2444 0.03829 180 143 30 7
1039 The last time you pitched an idea, I needed stitches. 1.2444 0.04065 180 146 24 10
1040 You’re in a mound of trouble, mister! 1.2444 0.04065 180 146 24 10
1041 Our signs must have gotten crossed up the pitch meeting is actually tomorrow. 1.2443 0.03801 176 139 31 6
1042 So how do you want to pitch this product? 1.2443 0.03968 176 141 27 8
1043 This coworking space is not what I expected. 1.2442 0.04029 172 138 26 8
1044 Ten...nine...eight... 1.2442 0.03857 172 136 30 6
1045 I’m sorry, Sir but the rain delayed my presentation. 1.2442 0.03676 172 134 34 4
1046 You're late on your delievery! 1.2440 0.03631 168 130 35 3
1047 You said you wanted us all to pitch in. Let me know when you’re ready for my fastball. 1.2440 0.03915 168 133 29 6
1048 Is this going to be another one of your screw ball ideas? 1.2440 0.04005 168 134 27 7
1049 Somebody threw you a curve. 1.2440 0.03728 168 131 33 4
1050 Strike three! 1.2440 0.03915 168 133 29 6
1051 My apologies, sir. The magazine only accepts pitches submitted via e-mail. 1.2440 0.04263 168 137 21 10
1052 That was not exactly the pitch I had in mind! 1.2439 0.03975 164 130 28 6
1053 First base isn't enough. 1.2439 0.03682 164 127 34 3
1054 What else you got? I never go for the first pitch. 1.2437 0.03940 160 126 29 5
1055 Vinkelnood in HR says you can pitch. 1.2435 0.03098 193 146 47 0
1056 I’m sorry can you go through that again? I was distracted by your see through pants 1.2434 0.04760 152 127 13 12
1057 I'm getting mixed signals up here 1.2431 0.03968 181 146 26 9
1058 We're going to go with the lefty in this situation 1.2428 0.03657 173 135 34 4
1059 I didn't see that curve ball coming. 1.2428 0.03923 173 138 28 7
1060 I would have thought it was obvious that I meant a sales pitch, Jones, but let’s see your curveball just for kicks. 1.2426 0.03984 169 135 27 7
1061 Well, there’s no need to balk. 1.2426 0.03709 169 132 33 4
1062 When I told you to spitball your best idea… 1.2426 0.03751 202 163 29 10
1063 I believe the person you're looking for is Kevin Costner. 1.2424 0.04137 165 133 24 8
1064 Before you begin presenting, keep in mind that the pitch clock has already started. 1.2423 0.03640 194 154 33 7
1065 Nice pitch, but you're the third porta-mound salesman today. 1.2420 0.03980 157 124 28 5
1066 No, I’m not going to put an apple on my head 1.2420 0.04082 157 125 26 6
1067 No, firing you isn’t a ‘balk’ 1.2420 0.03876 157 123 30 4
1068 Lose the shades and keep the see-through pants. 1.2419 0.03892 186 150 27 9
1069 When I said come and pitch your proposal, I did not mean that literally ! 1.2419 0.03816 186 149 29 8
1070 Mr Ohtani, …I don’t understand 1.2418 0.04352 153 124 21 8
1071 A Sales pitch Norman.....not an actual pitch. 1.2418 0.04450 153 125 19 9
1072 You can shake me off all you want, but you are going to to take a seat and wait your turn. 1.2418 0.03871 182 146 28 8
1073 I'm very busy so cut the small talk and just make your pitch 1.2418 0.03871 182 146 28 8
1074 You’re taking “the pitch” much too literally. 1.2414 0.04070 174 141 24 9
1075 Youll find the coffee machine at 2nd base on your left. 1.2412 0.04135 170 138 23 9
1076 You're the game changer? 1.2412 0.03690 170 133 33 4
1077 Balls aren't involved. You're throwing enthusiasm. Each time I look up, you need to look back at me like we're about to win the World Series. Nine to five. Every day. I like those tears. That's real. Keep it up. 1.2410 0.04024 166 133 26 7
1078 This is an inside job. 1.2410 0.03839 166 131 30 5
1079 That was a very nice slider. But that doesn’t show me you know how to use excel. 1.2405 0.04059 158 126 26 6
1080 Aw, c’mon. You knew ‘home’, ‘error’ and ‘hit’ had other meanings too. 1.2404 0.03611 183 144 34 5
1081 I see now this isn't as much fun as how I pictured it in my head. 1.2403 0.04508 129 103 21 5
1082 Well young man, baseball's been very very good to me as well. 1.2403 0.04327 154 125 21 8
1083 Please don't balk about the salary. 1.2403 0.03915 154 121 29 4
1084 When you said you wanted me to watch your pitch, I expected something less...literal. 1.2400 0.03798 175 139 30 6
1085 Every man is an island. 1.2400 0.04049 175 142 24 9
1086 When I said we were spit-balling, I didn't mean it literally. 1.2400 0.03883 175 140 28 7
1087 Sorry kid. But actually, we are looking for a belly itcher. 1.2400 0.04873 125 102 16 7
1088 Are you balking at my proposal? 1.2400 0.04197 150 120 24 6
1089 You'll never get to first base without a team. That's where I come in. 1.2400 0.03883 175 140 28 7
1090 When I asked you to be a team player, this is not what I had in mind. 1.2400 0.04049 175 142 24 9
1091 You must be the pitch consultant. 1.2398 0.03942 171 137 27 7
1092 Look, I’ll just walk. 1.2398 0.03854 171 136 29 6
1093 The pitch meeting is after lunch. 1.2398 0.04028 171 138 25 8
1094 Now let's practice that $10 Million stare. 1.2395 0.03912 167 133 28 6
1095 I’ll consider your offer, but what’s the catch? 1.2394 0.03927 188 153 25 10
1096 Before you pitch, just know that I've seen them all. 1.2393 0.03777 163 128 31 4
1097 Ironically, Tom, this is your third strike. 1.2390 0.04036 159 127 26 6
1098 Say “touch base” just one more time… 1.2389 0.03968 180 146 25 9
1099 Enough windup. I’m ready for the pitch. 1.2389 0.03642 180 142 33 5
1100 That’s not what “give me a pitch” means! 1.2387 0.03783 155 121 31 3
1101 Don’t get it, this is the 4th interview I’ve struck out on. 1.2386 0.03511 176 137 36 3
1102 You’ve been pitching me garbage all morning. 1.2386 0.03864 176 141 28 7
1103 You're traded. 1.2384 0.04378 151 123 20 8
1104 If you're really looking for another job that will let you take four days off for every one day you work, might I suggest a run for Congress? 1.2384 0.04173 172 141 21 10
1105 Ok, let’s do it, pitch me. 1.2384 0.03558 172 134 35 3
1106 I’m way off-base? You’re the one who doesn’t know how to pitch the client. 1.2383 0.03563 193 153 34 6
1107 And is this Tommy John in the room with us now? 1.2381 0.04070 168 136 24 8
1108 Our customers say you've been throwing nothing but curve balls. 1.2381 0.04157 168 137 22 9
1109 Ok, let’s not play games. 1.2381 0.04245 147 118 23 6
1110 I never noticed that lump in the carpet before... 1.2381 0.04426 126 100 22 4
1111 Sales! I said SALES! 1.2378 0.03576 185 146 34 5
1112 Yes, I built it. Thanks for coming. 1.2378 0.04321 143 115 22 6
1113 That's not what ball park figure means. 1.2378 0.04434 143 116 20 7
1114 We're looking for a team player. What's your best pitch? 1.2376 0.03314 202 158 40 4
1115 I think we were talking about two different things, but ok, go ahead 1.2375 0.04110 160 129 24 7
1116 I said I’d hear your pitch. I didn’t want to see it. 1.2373 0.04165 177 146 20 11
1117 You can play ball with me if you agree to my terms. 1.2373 0.03760 177 141 30 6
1118 Nice fastball. But can you type? 1.2372 0.03762 156 122 31 3
1119 I thought no man was an island 1.2370 0.04487 135 109 20 6
1120 I'm sold, but I'm gonna need you to pitch it again upstairs. 1.2370 0.03540 173 135 35 3
1121 So you asked if I wanted some iced tea and I said, “Please send up a pitcher…” 1.2370 0.03725 173 137 31 5
1122 I wish I had eight more just like you. 1.2368 0.04041 152 121 26 5
1123 This just seems like a lot of inside baseball to me, Bob. 1.2368 0.04352 152 124 20 8
1124 This isn’t what I meant by ‘always be closing…’ 1.2368 0.04041 152 121 26 5
1125 My father hired you to remind me I was born on third base. 1.2367 0.03684 169 133 32 4
1126 Okay, you have 30 seconds to make your pitch but it had better be good 1.2367 0.03960 169 136 26 7
1127 Find someone else for your mound visit; my schedule is jam packed 1.2366 0.03477 186 146 36 4
1128 Sorry but that offer is low and outside. 1.2364 0.04022 165 133 25 7
1129 This will keep employees from stealing. 1.2361 0.04515 144 118 18 8
1130 Henry always took preparing for the curveball a little too seriously. 1.2360 0.03581 161 125 34 2
1131 Not quite what I meant when I said ‘bring your best pitch.’ 1.2360 0.03825 178 143 28 7
1132 Well apparently some men are islands. 1.2357 0.04132 140 111 25 4
1133 I’m afraid you may have misunderstood our job posting. We’re an advertising agency recruiting for a pitchman, not a pitcher. 1.2357 0.03953 157 125 27 5
1134 Unfortunately, management has a different kind of changeup in mind. 1.2357 0.04252 157 128 21 8
1135 I think our definition of “spit balling” a few ideas is different. 1.2357 0.03953 157 125 27 5
1136 Oh what a relief it is. 1.2356 0.03522 174 136 35 3
1137 I understand that you have been shaking off my memos." 1.2356 0.03881 174 140 27 7
1138 So this pitch, is it something I haven't seen before? 1.2353 0.03909 153 121 28 4
1139 What are you doing here? I signaled for the lefty. 1.2353 0.04017 153 122 26 5
1140 I like your pitch, kid. But we traded you for a CFO to be named later. 1.2353 0.04123 153 123 24 6
1141 Well, we DO care if you never get back. 1.2353 0.04123 153 123 24 6
1142 Son of a Pitch! 1.2353 0.04326 153 125 20 8
1143 The company can't afford any more curve balls. 1.2350 0.03752 183 147 29 7
1144 You want a job here? OK, hit me with your best pitch. 1.2349 0.03814 166 132 29 5
1145 I said "elevator" pitch, and stop spitting on my carpet. 1.2349 0.04179 166 136 21 9
1146 HR wants to talk to you about the see-through pants. 1.2349 0.03515 166 129 35 2
1147 My advice: Wind up because your delivery is terrible. 1.2349 0.04193 149 120 23 6
1148 No I don’t have a radar gun. 1.2349 0.04084 149 119 25 5
1149 seriously 1.2346 0.03722 179 143 30 6
1150 Joseph, you don't have the balls to get me out. 1.2344 0.04365 128 102 22 4
1151 Your vocal range is impressive, but your pitch is a bit flat. 1.2343 0.03409 175 136 37 2
1152 You're supposed to bring your own ball. 1.2343 0.04187 175 145 19 11
1153 There's no easy way to put this, but You Are Out of Here! 1.2343 0.03687 175 139 31 5
1154 Carruthers, in business all that ‘home run’ stuff is a metaphor. 1.2342 0.03827 158 125 29 4
1155 You misunderstood the idea of a pitch meeting. 1.2342 0.03931 158 126 27 5
1156 The return-to-office policy does not apply to players. 1.2342 0.04032 158 127 25 6
1157 I already heard this in the elevator 1.2342 0.04228 158 129 21 8
1158 Ideas. I asked you to pitch ideas. 1.2340 0.04227 141 113 23 5
1159 We have a problem. Your colleagues say you tend to be way out of left field. 1.2339 0.03739 171 136 30 5
1160 This next interview questions is a bit of a curveball. 1.2338 0.03994 154 123 26 5
1161 I’m short on time. Can you make it a fast pitch? 1.2338 0.03886 154 122 28 4
1162 I meant your investing pitch! 1.2338 0.04201 154 125 22 7
1163 The company's counting on you, Jenkins. Now, go out and close the deal. 1.2338 0.04099 154 124 24 6
1164 That's not the way you pitch a new ad campaign. 1.2337 0.03572 184 146 33 5
1165 We're sorry sir, your sales pitch just won't fly. 1.2335 0.03979 167 135 25 7
1166 Where do you see yourself in 5 pitches? 1.2335 0.03887 167 134 27 6
1167 You have 15 seconds. Let's hear your pitch. 1.2335 0.03887 167 134 27 6
1168 OK, SO WHAT'S THE PITCH THIS TIME? 1.2333 0.04060 150 120 25 5
1169 You’re an outfielder, you idiot. 1.2331 0.03947 163 131 26 6
1170 Just give me your elevator pitch. 1.2331 0.03750 163 129 30 4
1171 Bob, lately you've been looking over your shoulder as if you expect someone to come in and relieve you of your responsibilities. 1.2331 0.04042 163 132 24 7
1172 This is how you pitch an idea 1.2330 0.03756 176 141 29 6
1173 Do 16 bars of “Take me out” 1.2329 0.03893 146 115 28 3
1174 I told you I wanted to hear your pitch, not see it. 1.2329 0.04563 146 121 16 9
1175 I wanted a glass of water, not a pitcher. 1.2329 0.04241 146 118 22 6
1176 No, I said your elevator pitch! 1.2328 0.03428 189 149 36 4
1177 I'm most likely not buying today, but what's your pitch? 1.2328 0.03345 189 148 38 3
